Play With A Purpose

Upward Sports started as a single church basketball league, and basketball has been UpWard Sports’ most popular sport ever since! From Recreational Leagues all the way up to Upward Stars Travel Teams, young basketball players can chart their own athletic journeys through multiple levels of programming – all while being developed into total athletes mentally, athletically, spiritually, and socially.
